Healthy Recipes- Sweet Breads – Pumpkin Bread
Wholegrain pumpkin bread is a WONDERFUL healthy baked treat that makes a quick healthy breakfast and/or a great food choice to put in your children’s lunch box. (Just store this delicious bread in the freezer and take a piece out the day you want to eat it.)
There are so many healthy pumpkin treats you can make if you buy a Costco size can of pumpkin puree including pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie and even pumpkin ice cream. Pumpkins are LOW in calories (only 15 calories per 1/2 cup) and loaded with nutrients that are so good for your body.
The GREAT NEWS in the “Wonderful World Of Pumpkin Baking” is It Reduces the Need for Extra Fat! There is only 1 tablespoon of oil in this whole recipe! I have also made this same recipe with no oil and added a tablespoon more pumpkin puree. Read More→
Healthy Breakfast- Healthy Desserts -Gluten Free Baking – Dairy Free Baking- Chocolate Scones
My little boy Max is now 4 years old and he just LOVES to bake healthy treats with his mommy.
We talk about what we are putting into each recipe, and he often makes suggestions to “add more cinnamon,” or “another egg.” We make a mess, have a lot of fun, and together we experiment making new recipes.
The other day, Max came running down the stairs in the morning right after he woke up announcing that he wanted to bake chocolate scones for “Shoo Shoo,”…… who apparently was turning either 3…… or 5 …. , my son wasn’t exactly sure.
Although the news of Shoo Shoo’s birthday was a suprise to me, I was delighted to bake a sweet treat for him and off we went to create our chocolate scone recipe together.
Healthy Eating- Healthy Breakfast
Tis the season to be jolly …………..and tis the season that unfortunately many of our kids get the flu!
The great news is that by eating healthy foods you can actually improve your kid’s immune system to either prevent colds and/or enable them to get over colds faster.
Tonia Reinhard, a registered dietitian and author of Superfoods and Joel Fuhrman, M.D. author of Super Immunity suggested that there were 8 foods that you could eat to help prevent colds. These foods included onions, fatty fish, mushrooms, eggs, beans, greens, berries, Greek yogurt and nuts. Read More→
With the holidays approaching, all of us will be indulging in fabulous dinners. To lighten things up on the dessert side, try making a healthy fruit crumble with whole grains!

Healthy Breakfast – Gluten Free- Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones
Dad’s Coconut Chocolate Chip Scone Recipe is dedicated to my HERO….my amazing dad who loves coconuts.
I love to cook, I love to bake, I love to play with electronic gadgets, I love to travel, I love to be spun around the dance floor, ………..and I love to go to spas that have candles and waterfalls EVERYWHERE! Yes…..I day dream…….ahhh.
It’s the little things that can make you so happy. You can turn lemons into lemonade, and you can turn bread ends into bread pudding!
This is the story of how I learned how to make bread pudding using the remaining end pieces of a whole wheat bread loaf.
For I have to admit.
The one thing that I really don’t like about really healthy whole wheat bread is………. without exception is the last few pieces of the loaf always seem to fall apart. It seems that the healthier the bread is, the type void of preservatives and chemicals, the more frequently this occurs.
